The Joy of My Salvation Thankful Thursday
The Joy of My Salvation
Last week I was have a moment with God and as I was praising God for being the joy of my salvation, I realize what these words really mean to me. The emotions which envelop me brought me to a place I have had the pleasure of experiencing several times in recent days; indescribable, not the moments but God. Sometimes the words we use to describe God are just not enough and this is the reason He is the joy of my salvation. My salvation is wonderful and I am very thankful for it; but now I realize it is God’s presence in my salvation, it is my relationship with Him, it is God showing up in my life at unexpected times, doing unexpected things. God is the
joy of my salvation because He cares for me beyond even my understanding, He loves me special. God has given me so much the greatest Jesus Christ who made my salvation possible. He open the door so I could be righteous in the eyes of God, Jesus made it possible for me to draw close to my Lord to move beyond the outer courts but into the holy of holies and there I find God’s glory. God Himself laid the path for me to know Him, experience Him, trust Him, love Him, and seek to dwell in Him all the days of my eternal life. He is the joy of my salvation because He is “Salvation”- Jesus-Jehovah is salvation.
Today I give thanks
For the wonderful indescribable joy of my salvation.
For the moments in which God speaks directly to my heart, revealing Himself to me.
For opportunities to share God with others who seek to know Him.
Because God has dressed me in clothing of salvation and I am as beautiful as a bride with her jewels.
Deeper Personal Study and Reflection
Yet I will rejoice in the LORD, I will joy in the God of my salvation. Habakkuk 3:18
I am overwhelmed with joy in the LORD my God! For he has dressed me with the clothing of salvation and draped me in a robe of righteousness. I am like a bridegroom in his wedding suit or a bride with her jewels. Isaiah 61:10
But I will offer sacrifices to you with songs of praise, and I will fulfill all my vows. For my salvation comes from the LORD alone." Jonah 2:9
